Bench update error - upstream not valid

This is for a custom app that we created which doesn’t have upstream remote defined.
Is upstream necessary for bench update to work? Any other work around possible?
When I do bench update, I get this error -

(env)root@ahplsvr01:/home/frappe/frappe-bench/apps/quality# bench update
Already up-to-date.
fatal: ‘upstream’ does not appear to be a git repository
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.
Error: None
